WAVVES @ Market Hotel last night (9/25) (more by Leia Jospe)
WAVVES

"Wavves was playing with Zach Hill as his drummer [at Market Hotel] and the sound was different and pretty cool.

We were partying pretty hard, and as always seems to happen, the party moved to Daddy's after everything was settled up. Daddy's was packed and the remnants of the Beets (welcome home, boys!) show at Dead Herring (happy birthday Cathy!) and the Black Lips show [at Roseland Ballroom (they opened for Yo La Tengo)] also had migrated to the ever popular "hot spot". Star Studded scene to the maxxxx, if you like slightly "important" indie rockers.

Now, I didn't see exactly how the fight happened, but I had heard the gossip a few months back about Jared (from Black Lips) talking shit about Nathan on the Internet. Pitchfork went as far as to wonder if Nathan and Jared would have a confrontation when they both played this summer's p4k fest in Chicago. Needless to say, that didn't happen.

Well, I suppose last night was the perfect storm. I didn't see the beginning, but I did see people dragging Nathan and Jared apart, and then Jared and a popular DJ running at Nathan again, spilling beer all over everyone (including me), and punches being thrown. The lights at Daddy's were turned on, the cops showed up, but Jared and the chick were not ready to stop fighting and were even trying to fight other people outside the bar. Jared was bloody. Nathan was fine. Insane. Weirdest indie rock moment I've experienced." [PopJew]

My friend Dave G tells me there was a broken bottle which might explain Jared's blood and serious anger. Stay tuned for more details.

UPDATE: Nathan says Jared "got what was coming to him"

UPDATE 2: Jared says "Wavves was NOT involved in that fight"

Why couldn't they both have had guns and killed each other

This is gay(the funny term), in countries like Sweden metal bands FUCKING KILL EACH OTHER!!!

Both of these guys probably SLAP-FIGHT.
And the Black Lips are a bunch of -for lack of a better term- DAFT CUNTS!

Wavves is at least keeping it interesting, even if he has no fucking talent whatsoever

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2009 4:28 PM

isn't making boatloads of money, getting to fuck models, getting to hang out with legends, et cetera, all enough for Jared? Crazy that dude would start such totally stupid shit. What a child!

He got what anybody should get for fucking with somebody: schooled and sent home with a bloody fucking face.

Two insecure kids that have built their careers on imitation, inadequacy and sensationalism. They deserve each other. I would say our generation deserves better, but we're the ones responsible for perpetuating this mediocre bullshit.

Gossip. Internet. Pitchfork.
This is the sad state of music today.

Music has never actually been about the music. The music just sucks more now. Black Lips and Wavves are two fantastic examples.

find a new refrain, asshole

This is huge news!

It's like if Mick Jagger had a fight with Paul McCartney.
I hope they are both okay and can continue to revolutionize the music scene.

get over yourself. you're reading this blog and actively posting: however cynical you want to believe you are, you obviously are following and like modern music.

I know your type: young nerd who thinks claiming to hate everything new makes him jaded in that oh-so-chic record collector way.

Stop posing and just enjoy music, you're wasting your time trying to hard to be an asshole all the time.

WTF? Neither of these combatants is anywhere near as talented as Jagger or McCartney.

I'm surprised Nathan beat up Jared seeing how short Nathin is.

pitchfork is for douche bags that need to follow the status quo, both the black lips and wavves are coattail riders that feed off the frenzy of the next big indie "thing".

I can totally see this going down like the cantina scene in Star Wars: A new hope. Black Lips was like that rat faced guy and was all like "I don't like you"
And wavves was all like "sorry" and Black lips was all like "my friend doesn't like you either" and in the movie he would be referring to his walrus faced friend but in reality he was probably talking about his trampy GF or some shit. Anyways wavves would be all like "whatevvs" and then Black lips would get all agro and Wavves's tour manager would have to step in and cut Black lips arm off with a broken bottle.

i dont care for either, but it sounds like this jared guy is the asshole in this situation. i guess this all started when he was talking shit on nathan before he had ever met him. what really happened isn't really clear now because its all he said she said right now. but right now jared is coming off as the douchebag

Seriously, this story was old by the time I heard it the next day. Dudes in bands get into fights all the time, why's this one so cool? Because both bands are so not-tough that it's funny? It's not really that funny.

Posted by Jon | September 28, 2009 10:58 AM

all this stupid fight talk aside, that chick who does the popjew blog is the biggest wannabe, tries-to-hard scenester i've ever seen in my life. and i've been around for a while. this girl popped up out of nowhere like a year ago at shows and now acts like she's a scene queen and tries hard to know everybody "relevant." people who live off the popularity of others are pretty much the lamest kind. she gives me douchechills whenever i see her aproaching.

A little while back I had the hazy, kinda strange pleasure of interviewing Wavves' Nathan Williams in the Los Angeles apartment he shares...

They should have grabbed whatever they had in their side and hurl it on the opposing side. Now that's how you start a fight!

What the heck? Why must there be bloodshed? Both guys could have settled the dispute in a humane manner. Couldn't blame them though. When there's a heated argument, the initial reaction would always be to physically fight and get back at the person you're arguing with.
